    Wow - does anyone actually fall for this stupid BS anymore? I do love the end of the letter though: you are a God sent to me for an assistance.

    Yes, people, I am a God. I am not here for an assistance, however.

    As for Miss Barou, I say we spray her with Kouros. Well, overspray her, that is.

    Thaifighter, that site is very amusing. Though I think they focus too much on West Africans scam artists. Another scambait I liked was the P-p-p-p-powerbook one. (See http://www.zug.com/pranks/powerbook/)

    The Game is Afoot!


    "Dear,



    Thanks for your prompt responds and my heartily greetings to you this day, I am glad for your interest in helping me with the funds transfer and investments in your country, please promise me that you will not betray me when my inheritance funds is transferred into your account. Please it will please me for you to help me in transferring this money, I will be going to the bank to inform them about you, when next you reply I will give you the contact of the bank.



    Dearest, I wish to inform you that I am a first year student of Cocody University of Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire before my father died which made it impossible for me to continue my educational carrier here. I lost my mother when I was very young, I didn't even know her. My father didn't remarry again because he loved my mother so much, so I became his only child and he took me so special and did everything for my sake and also deposited the fund in the bank for my sake and for my future.



    I would also want to meet with the bank here to request for the transfer to your account as soon as possible. I want you to know that I want to leave here within the shortest possible time because I've been humiliated, harassed, and frustrated by my immediate uncles in their efforts to take over all my late father's wealth, according to African tradition, whereby if a man dies without a son, all his properties will be shared among his brothers that is (my uncles) This is why my father deposited the funds in a fixed/suspense account for further transfer to overseas bank account.



    My Dear , my continuous stay here is not in my best interest as my life is not guaranteed here due to the injustice, current political crisis and killing of innocent people in this country. The fund in question is in my name but a mandate was placed on the account by the depositor which is my father. He mandated the bank to transfer the funds to his foreign business partner's account which shall be provided by me, being the next of kin to the deposited funds, This is why I require a good overseas bank account where the funds will be transferred to enable me leave here as soon as possible.



    Dear , since my father died, I have been on the run to avoid being kill by the people that killed my father as my father seriously warned me that I should avoid his business friends and his brothers on the event of his death because they are the people behind his sudden death. Right now as I am writing to you I am in a hide out and nobody knows about it except as I am telling you now and I want you to keep it confidential for my security reasons, I must be very careful and precaution should be my watchdog.

    My name and address :
    Miss Patricia Barou

    Lot 15 Rue des jardins
    Cocody-Abidjan ,
    Cote d'Ivoire , West Africa .



    Dear, my late father was a known cocoa merchant in this West Africa sub-region. He was one of the big exporters of cocoa produce in this country. I will appreciate your investment advices as soon as my inheritance funds gets into your account, because I am ignorant of business and investment world, so I will rely mostly on your advice in the investment aspect of this transaction. God bless you.



    Please we have to proceed immediately for more identification I will like to see your identity card to enable me open discussions with the bank in regards to the transfer. I want you to understand the need for urgency in this matter; I also want you to provide me with the following information:



    1. Your Address

    2. Your Age:

    3. Your occupation

    4 Telephone number



    I hope to hear from you so that I will give you the contact of the bank where this money is deposited



    Best wishes with Love,

    Yours sincerely,

    Miss Patricia Barou. "
